Network cables

A patch cable or patch cord (sometimes patchcable or patchcord) is an electrical or optical cable, used to connect ("patch-in") one electronic or optical device to another for signal routing. Devices of different types (ie: a switch connected to a computer, or switch to router) are connected with patch cords. Patch cords are usually produced in many different colors so as to be easily distinguishable, and are relatively short, perhaps no longer than two metres. Types of patch cords include microphone cables, headphone extension cables, XLR connector, RCA connector and ¼" TRS connector cables (as well as modular Ethernet cables), and thicker, hose-like cords (snake cable) used to carry video or amplified signals. However, patch cords typically only refer to those short ones used with patch panels.more

Flexible network cables for conference tables


What Ethernet network cable would you recommend for a conference room setup ?

Ideally it would need to be very flexible and resistant, but still easy to manipulate and unplug.

cat 6 in any length you think is needed will do fine. If you only have a limited amount of plugs to connect. I'd consider putting up a little switch (preferably with enough ports for every seat) in the middle and go with 1.5m cables from there.
